Nepal has a population of over 27 million, of which 16 per cent is urban and 45 per cent under 18 years. Its physical geography ranges from the southern terai plains at less than 100 m to the northern high mountains that rise to 8,850 m. Due to limited communication people lived in relatively isolated communities preserving their own language and culture. More recently, these divisions have become less distinct. Nepal is demarcated into 75 administrative districts. Natural disasters such as floods, landslides and earthquakes occur frequently. Out of 177 countries, Nepal ranks 136 on the Human Development Index (HDI).
Following ten years of conflict ending in 2006, the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Accord on 21 November 2006 marked a new phase in Nepal’s social, political, and economic development. On 23 January 2007 the United Nations Security Council established the United Nations Mission in Nepal (UNMIN) with a mandate to support the peace process including support to Constituent Assembly elections. Specific mention was made of women, children and traditionally marginalized groups. Social disparities among castes and ethnicities and the low quality of services are thought to be root causes of the conflict.
Additionally, women face social discrimination and chronic economic insecurity. The Peace Agreement has raised hopes among these marginalized groups.
